Re: Pictobits question...

theblackdragon

@Chicken Brutus: buying the music once gets you the basic music that starts when the level starts. have you ever played through a level so long that the music changes, though? it gets a little bit fuller or richer, and i believe the song is a little longer because you're adding that on; that's what you're paying for when you buy it again.

there, fixed that for you. always do your own research, do not trust Wikipedia on its own (at least check the article's references for yourself and read their 'sources' first).

and warioswoods is right; if you've got proof some of those games indeed are not coming, or you've done extensive searches on your own and cannot find proof of their eventual release anyway, remove it and try to start up a discussion on the Talk page. you may not end up getting any answers, and you may just end up fending off a lot of (misinformed) people who try to edit those games back into the list, but it's your baby, dude.

Re: Suikoden Tierkreis

theblackdragon

good times, man. if you're interested, i worked out some trade routes for when you get halfway through the game and upgrading your characters' equipment starts to eat away at your resources. trading is also important to get certain items to be sold in your castle (by trading Butterfly Wings, the Butterfly Robe becomes available for purchase, for example) once you recruit the character who sells weapons and armor (he's an automatic recruit, so don't worry about missing him :3).

but hey, at least you got to go to a show! :3

Re: DS/GBA import games do you own?

theblackdragon

I've got both Ouendan games, but i haven't made it all the way through either of them on all difficulties yet (i got kinda bored in the middle of the second level of Ouendan 1, and I only just started Ouendan 2 the other day when I needed a break from Tierkreis). I also bought a copy of Tadashii Kanji Kakitori-Kun via eBay to help me with my kana writing skills, and had been looking to import a copy of Kanji Sonomama Rakubiki Jiten, but i kinda went broke and had to curb my eBaying for a while. ^^;;

Re: What is up with TMNT!?!?

theblackdragon

@madgear: sorry, i just carry a torch for this game in particular because i've got so many negative memories of frustrating play sessions, especially when the next two NES TMNT games were so much more accessible in comparison (and fun, hello two-player action ). i still think the first game is absolutely terrible, it ranks at the top of my personal list of the worst NES games i've ever played (is it sad that i had more fun playing Bible Adventures? i think so), and i would never recommend it to anyone who's never played it before (except, perhaps, a worst enemy, lol), but i can see where perhaps other people would not feel the same.

NSMB2 would be very welcome (especially if it's a revamped SMB2(US) as opposed to just a direct sequel to NSMB), but Super Princess Peach... eh, it was all right, but i don't think i'd get real worked up over it unless it had some extra gameplay features added or a better plot than the first.

Re: I'm looking for Software for changing the pitch of music

theblackdragon

have you tried Audacity? it's free, and it's a little bit daunting at first, but i use it to edit stuff into ringtones for my phone and whatnot. here's all the features it has to offer.

just so you know, it won't import or export AAC files; you'd have to modify them as MP3s and then convert them via iTunes or similar to put onto your DSi if that's what you wanted to do with them afterward.

It should be an option. Voice chat should be an option. Writing text should be an option. And there should be a mute option or block text option for those that don't want either. More people want communication than those that don't want it.

this. surely they could build in a way to opt out of communications entirely if they're going to go through the trouble of going back and putting them in at all (not that it'll probably ever happen).

do you have an SD card in your DSi? try running the photo channel with your SD card removed and see if it still freezes on you. it may be an issue with your SD card; did you do anything to it (add music, back up pictures, etc.) recently?

Wave Race with Miis? How could it look anything but awesome? I hope you can ride dolphins again.

Miyamoto just called, said he wanted my input on some kind of new peripheral for just that. So I flew out to NoJ's R&D place, and it turns out they actually built a freaking dolphin. It weighs 600 lbs, swims around (within a 30-foot radius of the Wii, at least), and runs on fish (as well as batteries for the wiimote you shove into its blowhole), but the bad part is that you need to set up your Wii on a pier or the beach in order to use it (well, that, and it also smells like fish D: ).

After testing it out for a while, we got bored with the connection to the Wii constantly cutting out, so we went fishing instead, but i hate fishing so we went and got some Indian chow. I'm afraid I had to tell him it would be a flop on the market. He thanked me, autographed my t-shirt, and then I flew home.

Re: Games Beaten in 2009

theblackdragon

@Objection_Blaster: I liked Rise from the Ashes because it really showcased what improvements they were able to make with the DS as opposed to the ported GBA episodes (and in retrospect, it helped to flesh Ema's character out considerably, though not so much where she picked up the Snackoo habit, and Gumshoe got some good airtime as well). Storywise, though, it's not really my favorite either. They did their best to fit it in, but it still felt odd to play through the previous three episodes with Maya and then to not see hide nor hair of her in that 'last' case. It also didn't get a splash image for the episode-choosing screen, IIRC, which helped to make it stand out from the others worse.

Re: M-rated download titles...any restrictions?

theblackdragon

I don't see the big deal, Stuffgamer1, especially since the Parental Controls are there and are rather easy to set up. the splash image for Splatterhouse and Splatterhouse 2 are just the names in text on a dark background, so if push came to shove and the parents didn't restrict the Wii Shop along with the game ratings the kids could play (there is a separate option to restrict downloads and credit card transactions via the Wii Shop, I just checked through the Parental Controls), they could download it and just stare at the splash image or the PIN request all day.

as for 'assuming that every parent uses the parental controls is a bit much'... providing them is all Nintendo has to do, and in court their legal team is going to say 'hey, you had the option to restrict adding Nintendo Points and to restrict downloads to keep them from downloading a game without your supervision, you had the option to require a PIN for them to play games rated beyond what you want them to play, it was all right there in the user manual and easy to find in the System Menu, and you chose to not use them. It's your problem, not ours.'
